This season, we're exploring puppetry through the ELEMENTS!
Coney Island has been shaped by WATER, AIR, FIRE, and EARTH over the years...
WATER - Multitudes of beachgoers drop in seasonally to commune with the ocean, while inclement weather has been known to bring waves dangerously ashore.
AIR - Since the turn of the last century, Coney Island has been home to world famous amusement rides that propel, project, and plunge adventurous souls through the air.
FIRE - Historically, Coney Island was called the "city of fire" for its abundance of incandescent lights, while blazing infernos razed parts of the neighborhood time and again.
EARTH - What goes up, must come down... Fantastic structures have risen and fallen back to the earth in Coney Island, while the seashore holds so many secrets buried in the sand.
WATER - July 8th
AIR - August 12th
FIRE - September 9th
EARTH - October 29th
Puppets Come Home! at Coney Island is a series designed to celebrate Coney Island's 150-year legacy of puppetry & provide a platform for contemporary cutting-edge puppeteers!
Puppets Come Home! is made possible in part through the generosity of The Puppet Slam Network (www.puppetslam.com).
Congress of Curious Peoples, Sunday, September 26th!
Featuring Jim Rose's first interview in a decade! Further details coming soon!
2021 Mermaid Parade Canceled
Dear Friends of Coney Island USA:
It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Mermaid Parade.
When we set the September date, we hoped that the Parade, the largest art parade in the nation and a point of civic pride for Coney Island, would represent a return to normalcy. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is not finished with us quite yet.
The Parade draws hundreds of thousands to Coney Island every year, including large numbers of children, many crowding onto mass transit for the ride out to Stillwell Avenue. It is the centerpiece of the CIUSA calendar, and we are very proud of the positive impact that the Parade has on our Coney Island community. However, the risks to our sponsors, patrons, community, and our wonderful staff—who have risen to every challenge—were too much to bear.
We are all disappointed and apologize to those of you who, like us, were looking forward to this annual celebration of life, creativity, and togetherness, post-2020.
Please be assured that the Mermaid Parade will return in 2022, better than ever!
In the meantime, help support Coney Island USA by attending one of our ticketed events, becoming a member, and above all—BY GETTING VACCINATED!!
